Do you have a funny story from your days at Astoria;
When I first started working for “the girls” I was a duty night manager and on one of my shifts I decided it was so slow I had the power to close early and no one would know, and of course this night the girls were out and came back thru the cafe and told me in no uncertain terms that we DON’T close early for any reason. First lesson learned about the girls, they see everything !!!

Happy Birthday Astoria you rock !!
